Ezra

Ezra is a minor character who may actually be the mortal name of the Skeleton Hitchhiking Ghost.

OriginEdit

The name Ezra was unofficially created by Cast Members as a name for the Skeleton Hitchhiking Ghost, along with the names of Gus and Phineas for the Prisoner and the Traveler

Official uses of the nameEdit

Slave Labor Graphics comic Edit

Ezra and the rest of the hitchhikers are recurring characters in the comic.

His backstory is given in the 7th issue in a story entitled "Laugh? I Thought I'd Die!". Here, he is given the name Ezra Gasser. In life, Ezra was a mischievous prankster who started Gasser Novelties, a successful business selling practical joke novelties that ran from 1907 to 1924. With sales in a decline, Ezra traveled to seek out new product ideas and eventually came across Chinese finger traps in a mysterious little shop. As he found himself unable to free himself, the shopkeeper disappeared and Ezra laughed himself to death. His spirit eventually found his way to the Mansion where his practical jokes earned the scorn of the other residents, leading him to start taking up hitchhiking.

TombstoneEdit

On the hillside near the entrance to the Mansion in Liberty Square is an epitaph-less tombstone with the name Ezra. This tombstone debuted in 2011 as part of the interactive queue installation for Walt Disney World's Haunted Mansion attraction. It is likely a nod of the Imagineers to the fan-generated nicknamed, and may be seen as a "canonization" of it.

PinEdit

Depicted on this page is a merchandise item released along with the tombstone, featuring the Skeleton hitchhiking while behind the Ezra tombstone. This is likely one more confirmation of the connection between the Skeleton and that name.

Disney Crossy RoadsEdit

The Skeleton Hitchhikign Ghost is a minor character in the mobile-phone-only Disney video game Disney Crossy Roads. There, he is referred to as Ezra Beane.

TriviaEdit

  • Another Haunted Mansion haunt named Ezra was featured in the 2003 live-action feature. Although the name was inspired by the Skeleton's popular nickname, he is quite a separate character, being plump and alive-looking, whereas the Skeleton also appears in the movie, depicted very close to his park self.
